In your opinion, how would you rate the state’s response to the pandemic? Why?

I rate the response as -Poor.
Governor Sisolak's lockdown orders were devastating to Nevada's economy.
In February 2020, Nevada had a record low unemployment rate of 3.6%.
Within a few months after the lockdown by the Governor, Nevada had a high unemployment rate of 30.5%.
Small businesses were closed permanently, people lost their jobs and could not pay their rent, mortgages or other bills.
Schools and places of worship were closed down.
Children lost valuable learning time by the shutdown of our schools.
Southern Nevada’s tourism/casino/resort industry was particularly hard hit.

Education and local government officials have long asked lawmakers to change the way the state assesses property taxes. That includes raising the current tax threshold. Should lawmakers consider raising those thresholds? If not, what is the best way for governments to raise money for local programs?

We cannot tax our way into prosperity. I am not in favor of raising taxes on the people of Nevada.
I believe that people should keep more of their hard earned money.
Government and elected officials should learn to live within their means.
We need to cut or reduce duplicate programs, waste, and bloated government programs.
